this nomination, this is something that those close to president obama feel good about, that they feel ultimately he will be able to clear the senate and this was something obviously that was out there for some time. and that this was a decision that the president came to perhaps not too difficultly. but i think something that struck me and we just heard what president obama said there, was that when he referenced that chuck hagel knows america stands strongest when it stands with allies, that seemed to be answering that criticism that some have had about his position on iran, some critics particularly republicans saying that he's been soft on iran, that he hasn't been a friend of israel, the white house has been emphasizing that while hagel has been skeptical as they put it of unilateral sanctions against iran, they have been stressing his votes, supporting sanctions against iran and the context of a coalition including the u.s. sort of opposing iran with the sanctions. and that is obviously something he'll emphasize in his confirmation process. the other thing, wolf, i think this factored into

. the nomination process for the next treasury secretary is moving forward with president obama naming jack lew as his pick. "i trust his judgement, i value his friendship, i know very few people who have greater integrity than the man to my left." lew currently serves as the chief of staff in the obama administration and could become treasury secretary when timothy geithner leaves later this month. joining us now via skype with insights is jim bianco of bianco research. how is wall street responding? > > lukewarm on the jack lew nomination. they're not really that thrilled. > other than lew's poor penmanship, how well will lew's no-drama approach play out in the upcoming debt ceiling talks? > > in the debt ceiling talks it is going to be interesting. other than the no drama, he has got a history of being confrontational with republicans, and that is going to be difficult because that is who he's got to deal with. > didn't he once work on wall street? > > briefly at citibank for a couple of years around the time of the financial crisis. > do you think the republicans will go along with his nomi

breaking out over president obama's pick for secretary of defense. he's chuck hagel. >> chuck knows war is not a distraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. my frame of reference, he has said, is geared towards the guy at the bottom who is doing the fighting and the dying. >> senator hagel, though, may not have an easy confirmation. here is the reaction today from senator john mccain, a one-time political ally who once considered hagel as a running mate. i have serious concerns about the positions senator hagel has taken on a range of critical issues in recent years which we will fully consider in the course of the confirmation process. he's talking about iran, his willingness to consider cuts to the budget, and perhaps his pro -pro pro-israel support. >> i'm a united states senator, not an israeli senator, but my first interest, i take an oath of office to the constitution. >> lindsey graham said his former colleague would, quote, be the most antagonistic secretary of defens
and democratic speaker tip o'neill, but the basic structure is sound. >> that's president obama during the first presidential debate decribing social security as structurally sound, he has no plans to change it. but there are new dire warnings that the fed is badly underestimating the amount they have to pay in the coming years and we don't have enough money to do it. for the sense why this issue is getting new attention, in there were beneficiaries, had a.4 million. by the end of 201155.4 million, a 22% increase in just 11 years. back in 2000 social security beneficiaries paid out 407.7 billion bucks, by the end of 20 2 2011, 698.1 billion. it's not getting better from there. fox business's gerri willis is with me. we don't have enough money. the two guys took a comprehensive look and op-ed said it's worse than anybody is letting you know. we're going to run out of money, the social security trust fund is going to be depleted years earlier than the feds suggest. what is the time frame we're looking at? >> well, let me tell you, this is a huge, huge problem and you can blame the baby boomers bec
that washington wld operate a little bit differently now that obama had been re-elected. and, you know, if you're a conservative republican you could argue that you wanted to beat obama at the ballot box, but if you could don't that, then it's time to cooperate with him. i think the last few weeks have showed us that that's not the lesson that most republicans took away from the election. and we're in for bitter, acrimonious debate for the rest of the year. very, very hard to see how much gets accomplished. and, you know, as you point out, they had months and months to deal with this so-called sequester, the automatic spending cuts, and they couldn't do it. they'll do something because they have to, but i wouldn't be too optimistic about kumbaya washington returning anytime soon. >> i agree with you there. president obama has said, though, the gun violence, immigration, they're at the top of his second-term agenda. will he find any support in congress with all this going on? >> if you look at his agenda, gun control, immigration, and these fiscal issues, they are the three issues that divide d

president obama made to bypass congress to use executive orders to enact new gun control laws. can he do that? peter doocy live in washington with the latest. >> brian, former president bill clinton was in vegas at the consumer electronics show, and part of his presentation was a plea for stricter gun control. it's very interesting. he said in some places with high crime rates there are going to need to be armed guards in schools, an idea the n.r.a. has endorsed. but he also said the broader issue of gun control must still be addressed. >> i grew up in [inaudible] why do anybody need a 30-clip for a gun? why does anybody need one of those things that carries 100 bullets? half of all the mass killings in the united states occur since the assault weapons ban expired. >> vice president biden yesterday said the president is talking to attorney general holder about potentially issuing an executive order to restrict weapons with the hope of preventing gunmen from committing mass murder in the future, although he made clear it is not something that has been decided on yet. president obama has p
by president obama's 2012 campaign comments supporting an all-of the-above agenda on energy and his statements outlining specific support for oil and natural gas production. we need more energy ever all times. even as we dramatically expand renubility energy sources and increase energy fossil fuels continue to have an important role to play. not only does natural gas have an increase role in electrician generation it provides the raw materials to manufacture wind turbine, and solar panel. it's a backup power. a future of abundant domestic energy is already being made real through today's oil and natural gas industry investments. in cutting edge technology, to our resources previously thought unreachable. with unconventional resources soon expected to produce the majority of american's energy we may soon be calling them very conventional. shale energy development has been a game changer for communities, the economy, and even our environment as increased use of natural gas has reduced co2 emissions in the united states to 1992 levels. since 1990, the industry has invested more than $252 billion
, california. republican line. caller: hi, pedro. first of all, i was stunned that obama was re-elected but i'm pessimistic about the nation's economy and future of it. but for my own personal standpoint i'm optimistic about my situation. i have been unemployed a little over two years and i was under the impression i would get 99 weeks in california. but because of the formula i only got 70-something and it is long gone. but i learned during the last couple of years that california used to be almost impossible to get permanent disability but now there's attorney services advertised on tv to say they won't charge unless you get a reward from disability. and they say there are ways to get it in california that you are probably not aware of. so i'm going monday to check that out. and i think that i'm a republican, of course, but i may join the democrats now. i'm for the welfare society and entitlements. i'm going to get permanent disability and be set for life. host: when you look at how you gauge whether you are worried or optimistic as a whole what do you look at? what factors do you look at?
